"What I love is near at hand."

See ya in two years.

 On October 6th, Elder Timothy H. Romney was set apart as a 
missionary by President Hiatt of the Mesa Central
Stake.  He asked Elder Romney to bare his testimony, and Tim
expressed his love of the Savior and the atonement and 
his desire to bring that message to the people of 
Argentina.  After the setting apart, we went to Texas
Roadhouse as a family for dinner.

After dinner, we came home and Timmy finished packing.
J.R. and Samuel Langston came over to visit for awhile, too.

We had to leave for the airport the next morning by 6:00 AM for
his 7:45 AM flight to Provo, Utah.

Everyone took turns saying goodbye and
giving a last hug!

I know that there is no better thing that Tim
could be doing with his life at this time.
I'm thankful for his desire to serve and
for his testimony.  I'm excited to receive his
weekly emails and watch him grow into a man.

Farewell Sunday

Tim gave his farewell talk in sacrament meeting 
on Sunday.  He did a really good job, too!
I'm always amazed (and thankful) that these boys really
do grow up!  I'm so proud of him and his desire to serve
the Lord for two years in Argentina.  He has made great 
strides, and we've had a fun summer being home together.  
I've loved how he has made his family a priority and spent a lot 
of time with us.  I'm gonna miss him, for sure! But I know he is doing the best thing he could be doing at this time in his life.

Timmy received his mission call!

It's so exciting to discover that big, white envelope 
in the mailbox!!!!

The call arrived on a Friday morning, and Tim didn't 
open it until Saturday night!  Oh, the wait is 
almost unbearable!

 He has been called to serve in the Argentina, Cordoba
Mission and departs for the Provo MTC on October 7th.
He will miss seeing Johnny by a month and a half!

I'm so grateful for Tim's decision to serve the 
Lord for two years.  I know that it is the very
best thing he could be doing.  It will forever 
affect him for the better, and I am sure that 
he will be a great missionary.  I'm also 
thankful that he gets to serve in a Latin 
American country and learn the Spanish language 
like his two older brothers!  Tim has already plunged
right into that mission call book and begun 
the preparations to get out the door! I'm going
to love getting those weekly emails and watching his 
testimony grow and hear all about his adventures
in Argentina!

Mother's Day 2015

I had such a wonderful Mother's Day this year.  It started out on
Saturday afternoon when I received roses in the mail from Greg, Lizz, and the girls.  I love getting flowers in the the mail! And they came in a pretty blue mason jar that I will use over and over again!  Chocolates were also in the package!

On Sunday Mike, Carina, and Sebastian came over.  Scott grilled some
carne asada and Carina made beans!  Mike and Carina gave me a rose
plant and a gift certificate to Daisy Nails!  Nice, nice!

Timmy also gave me a Daisy Nails certificate and some of my favorite
protein bars.  So very thoughtful of him to do that for me!

Matty made me a keychain in his shop class at Stapley Jr. High.  So cute!

Sammy carved a candle in cub scouts and made a darling card in his  4th grade class.  Those are always the best gifts!

Scott spoiled me with brand new luggage!  Pink luggage!  I love it!
My friend, Michel, hooked him up real good!

And the best part of Mother's Day was getting to Skype with my
Johnny Boy in Chile! He's so dang cute!  It's our last Skype before he comes home at the end of the year!

Happy Mother's Day to me!!!!

High School is coming to an end for Timmy.  He attended his senior prom with this pretty girl, Brionda Chon. I think they look so great all dressed up in their red and blue. 
Tim's senior picture for his announcements!

And the most exciting news is that Tim had his final interview with the
Stake President today and has submitted his mission papers!  He should
be receiving his call in about two weeks!!!  I'm so happy for him!

We celebrated Mike's 27th birthday in April.  Twenty-seven!!!

Sebastian, is so funny....ever since his 2nd birthday, he thinks every birthday cake is for him, and his favorite is blowing out the 
candles!  I sure love that feisty little boy.
